Ethica and Zawya Announce Partnership

Ethica and Zawya Announce Partnership

DUBAI, UAE, September 20, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — Ethica Institute of Islamic Finance and Zawya today announced a partnership to jointly deliver online Islamic banking courses and certification. Ethica Institute’s certification is chosen by more professionals and students than any other Islamic finance certificate in the world, and Zawya is widely regarded as the leading provider of business and investment intelligence in the Middle East.

“We are very excited to partner with Zawya to offer their community of business professionals, nearly 1 million visitors per month, with online Islamic finance training and certification,” said Ethica’s Managing Director, Atif Khan. “This historic partnership addresses the greatest need in the industry: practical training developed by scholars and bankers and delivered online around the globe; rather than theoretical training taught by academics and delivered inside a classroom.”

Zawya’s acting Chief Executive Officer, Gunnar Skoog, said, “This landmark partnership with Ethica marks Zawya’s ambition to provide quality training and certification in Islamic finance. It will enable us to provide a one-stop platform for Sukuk news, reports, intelligence, connectivity and education developed by scholars and bankers.”

A partnership between Ethica and Zawya would bring unprecedented access to standardized Islamic finance training and certification to both companies’ extensive community of high-end users. In the coming months the two companies intend to jointly launch a specialized Islamic finance certification focusing on Sukuk.

Why Islamic Finance?

Why Islamic Finance?

What makes Islamic finance different from conventional finance? And what makes it better? We look at 3 real-world examples and find out. We also introduce you to the 4 principles that guide Islamic finance transactions.

At EthicaInstitute.com we believe that many of the world’s problems could be solved by providing alternatives to interest-based banking. If governments, companies, and individuals could focus on something other than repaying mounting debts, the world would be a much better place. We also believe that the industry urgently needs to comprehensively train the many people now entering Islamic finance.

Crash courses are not enough.

What is needed is ongoing, standards-based training for everyone. From single individuals to entire banks. Anytime, anywhere.

In an effort to meet this growing demand for Islamic finance training, we created EthicaInstitute.com, the world’s first dedicated Islamic finance e-learning portal. The site offers training modules, certification, discussion forums, member profiles, a Q&A database, podcasts, and live webinars.
